Experience very similar to Marta Q. I too thought "Ocean view" was really pushing it a bit - all we saw were cars and people gawking at us through the window - felt a little bit like a caged animal. The room itself was fine and spacious but that's about as good as it gets. The on-site Manager was great...

We had the room at the front right over reception and it was very comfortable. It had its own balcony where we got a beautiful sea breeze and we were able to leave windows open at night and use ceiling fans rather than have the aircon on The location is great right opposite Main Beach and is about a 5...

This place is in a brilliant location with great views and access to the beaches but could do with some maintenance.. Having said that it was very clean and reasonably priced. It was quite an easy walk down to town or either of the 3 main beaches

It is an easy walk to both Pippi and main beach and close to the pub and other cafes. Location- amazing. Rooms- really, really clean- we...

Just up from the main beach. Well designed room with an outdoor sitting area. Everything was very clean and functional. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night and would stay again.

Perched right on the hill overlooking Yanba's Main Beach we could not have got a better location. Views of the beach and lighthouse from our balcony were superb. The rooms were generously sized with a small separate room with single bed which was great for two ladies sharing. Relief Managers were very friendly with local tips for restaurants (which were...

We stayed for 2 days with a 4 year old. The hotel is very close to the beach and the park where you can have some barbeque. A fully self-contained affordable place for a short stay if you are only interested going to the beach. The people in front desk (owners) were lovely. The room is neat and tidy. There...
